Led Zeppelin to release O2 concert DVD?

Led Zeppelin to release O2 concert DVD?
The internet has been hit with a furore of rumour and speculation after Led Zeppelin posted a cryptic status update on their official Facebook page yesterday (September 8).

Fans have been speculating what the picture of the word 'five' - written in same typeface as the Led Zeppelin logo for the 'Houses Of The Holy' album – means, with many guessing that it could be a reference to an up-coming release of their 2007 O2 reunion concert on DVD.

The band reunited to play the Ahmet Ertegun concert in December 2007 at the O2 arena in London, but a DVD of the much sought after gig has never been released. Many speculate that the 'five' relates to the fifth anniversary of the show.

This theory was given extra credence yesterday afternoon when Peter Mensch, who is Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page's manager, posted on Twitter:

However, some fans are still hoping out for a full reunion tour. Commenting on NME's Led Zeppelin 'Five – What Does It All Mean? blog, Georgina Mt said: "The Stone Roses got back together so anything can happen."

While, Michela Sacchi O'Brien wrote: "Jimmy Page was at the Roses London gig and said he was very impressed…maybe it got him thinking? It would be funny as John Squire got thinking about reuniting the Roses after seeing Led Zeppelin at the O2."

A reunion tour is unlikely, however, as Robert Plant said recently in a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone that he was not interested in a full-blown Led Zeppelin reunion, saying: "I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it...It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest. Who cares? I know people care, but think about it from my angle - soon, I'm going to need help crossing the street."
